DR. SEUSS STORY TIME MARCH 4
February 24th, 2015 11:55 AM

"You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book to read to a child.”

United Way of Greater Chattanooga is celebrating the week of Dr. Seuss's birthday by encouraging kids to get excited about reading. It's all part of Read Across Chattanooga, a local celebration of all things related to Dr. Seuss and his books.  

On Wednesday, March 4, readers will be sharing their favorite books from Dr. Seuss's library of work. Bring your children to hear one of their favorites, or maybe reminisce while listening to your favorite story from your childhood.

The Dr. Seuss Story Time will begin at Barnes and Noble Booksellers at 11 a.m. with a story reading. Then at 11:30 a.m., the Cat in the Hat will lead the children to the Center Court Stage for more stories and activities, including: local celebrities reading Dr. Seuss stories; a visit from the Cat in the Hat; free book enrollments and a book-related literacy activity for kids and their parents to enjoy. 

This event is free to the public and everyone is invited to attend.

"You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book to read to a child.”

United Way of Greater Chattanooga is spending the week of March 1 celebrating the work of Dr. Seuss by encouraging kids to get excited about reading.

On Wednesday, March 4, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., United Way will hold a reading event at Barnes & Noble and the Center Court Stage in Hamilton Place Mall as part of Read Across Chattanooga.  The event will begin with a book reading at the Barnes & Noble kids area at 11 a.m., then the Cat in the Hat will lead the children to the Mall’s Center Court Stage where there will be book readings until 1 p.m., along with time with the Cat in the Hat, free book enrollments, and book-related literacy activities for kids and their parents to enjoy.

On Saturday, March 7, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the week will culminate with a birthday party to honor Dr. Seuss, held at the Mall’s Center Court Stage. There will be free books given away, face-painting, snacks, celebrity book readings, book-related arts and crafts activities, visits from the Cat in the Hat, free learning check-ups at the Mall Play area and more.

Local celebrities will be on hand to help with readings at both events.  Readers will be sharing their favorite books from Dr. Seuss's library of work. Bring your children to hear one of their favorites, or maybe reminisce while listening to your favorite story from your childhood.
